Saturday was spent doing chores... Not my favourite occupation but at some point every week the business of 'just living' demands attention. A supermarket trip, some laundry, some cleaning, dusting and vacuuming... It was a dull and drizzly day so I didn't mind too much, but in the afternoon a weak sun broke through and I decided a little walk in the fresh air was necessary - also an important part of living.
I'm so glad I live within a ten minute walk of Roberts Park. On the way down, I bumped into some friends and had a brief but pleasant chat with them. Then I did a circuit of the park, at a brisk pace as it was quite chilly despite the sunshine. I often think of the generations of Saltaire residents who've probably done the very same perambulation. There were a few other people about, not many. I stopped only to take a few photos. Well, I can't go out without my camera, can I? The bandstand seems to be a favourite subject lately. It looks so smart with its new coat of paint and the light on it was very attractive.
